Lo-fi singer/songwriter Jerry Paper is set to perform on November 12, 2020. He’s fresh off a new release Abracadabra via Stones Throw Records released on May 15, 2020. The album mixes lo-fi with funk elements and world beats.
Jerry Paper aka Lucas Nathan arrived on the LA scene in 2012, but he’s been making music since 2009. Over the years, his project has morphed from an experimental sound to a more focused and realized incarnation. He collaborated with members of Mild High Club, Badbadnotgood and Weyes Blood on his 2018 album Like a Baby, and has shared the stage with Mac Demarco, Beach Fossils, Mild High Club and more indie favorites.
Nathan’s live performance often includes him dancing like no one’s watching in a silk robe. “I embody an exaggerated version of myself, pushing it to a limit where I transcend my ego, in an effort to get the audience to shed their ideas of themselves, shed their egos, and be free,” Nathan says of his live act. Nathan adds, “I think binary ideas are directly contrary to the complexity and subtlety of the world, of lived experience. I try to use my music and performance to held rid people of binary thought as the default mode of engaging with the world.”
